A collaborative performance between myself and Dave Robinson.

An empty slide projector shined down onto the square pool of water and made a reflection of light on the wall opposite.

Vibrations made by the sound waves, combined with me “playing’ the water, made patterns of diffracted light on the wall. Dave responded to these patterns in his playing, as I responded to the sounds he was making.

painting white objects, so only concerned with the light and shade and form.

acrylics and oils

So much fun.




On the 18th and 19th June 2016 there will be The Wealden Literary Festival, held at Boldshaves garden, near Woodchurch, Kent.

I am presently working in the grounds of Boldshaves and a beautiful barn developing new work, in response to the nature of the place. I will be exhibition this and other work on the theme of nature and place during the weekend festival.

It didn’t look like this, it looked like a perfectly spherical orange satsuma floating in a petrol blue sky.

At 3.30am, then I went to bed!

(no editing, no tripod!)

Using the space The Art Shack; the sound artist Gerry Kelly, and two musicians; Clive Fletcher on bass and Ian Gooda on drums, came into the space and using the water pool I’d built for Project 2: camera obscura inverted (see below), reverberated the water using sound waves. A theater spot-light reflected the ripples on the water surface onto the back wall.

It is really beautiful and mesmeric in the real.

The 2 varying patterned ripples of the two instruments overlapped and combined.
